How the West was One is a collection of stories from prominent Australians who grew up in Melbourne's western suburbs. Memoir at its best, these yarns capture what it was like to live in suburbs like Footscray, Seddon, Yarraville, Sunshine, Altona and many others in the 1950s, `60s and `70s. The 39 contributors include people from all walks of life including: Josephine Cafagna, Lina Caneva, Mark Ferrie, Kevin Harrington, Tony Leonard, Michael Leunig, Wendy Stapleton, Ted Whitten Junior, Pat Wilson and many more, with a foreword by Rob Sitch.
It is also a fundraiser for the charity Western Chances and will be launched by Terry Bracks on November 12.
